Break your fast with 2 cups of water, 2 hours later drink another 2 cups. Then drink another 2 cups at 11 and another 2 at sohour time. That comes to 8 glasses.

 

2- Stay away from sugar

For the obvious reasons of it being unhealthy, but also because it dehydrates your body making your fast a lot harder. Replace sugary drinks with their non-sugar version, herbal iced teas or fresh juices. Switch out desserts for healthy alternatives such as dates with a nut butter.

 

3- Eat protein

It will keep you full for longer and gives you a slow release of energy so you don’t lose the blood sugar balance throughout the day. Bonus: It could help you lose weight.

 

4- Consume fruits and vegetables

5- Add lots of fiber rich foods

They’re slower to digest keeping you satiated.
